In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon HD 4550 are significantly better than the Nvidia GeForce 6800 XT.

The Radeon HD 4550 was released over three years more recently than the GeForce 6800 XT, and so the Radeon HD 4550 is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the GeForce 6800 XT when running the latest games.

The Radeon HD 4550 and the GeForce 6800 XT have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The Radeon HD 4550 has 1.6 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GeForce 6800 XT, which means that the memory performance of the Radeon HD 4550 is marginally better than the GeForce 6800 XT.

The Radeon HD 4550 has 80 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce 6800 XT has 12. However, the actual shader performance of the Radeon HD 4550 is 34 and the actual shader performance of the GeForce 6800 XT is 4. The Radeon HD 4550 having 30 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the Radeon HD 4550 delivers a marginally smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GeForce 6800 XT.

The Radeon HD 4550 requires 25 Watts to run but there is no entry for the GeForce 6800 XT. We would recommend a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the Radeon HD 4550.
